Are You More Prone Fo Injury If You Have Fibromyalgia?

Are You More Prone Fo Injury If You Have Fibromyalgia?

I feel like the answer to this question is a resounding yes, but for the purposes of exercise, does anyone know more about how this works and/or how we can prevent injury/muscle strain? Many mornjngs I wake up so stiff that it fees like I am pulling muscles just walking and warming up to do some stretching and basic strengthening exercises.

Physiotherapy is really good for showing you the correct way to work out and excersice without hurting or damaging your body further with the illness. They showed me excersices to do and now i do them before i go running or the gym and also how go cool off afterwards. Was a great help and would recommend it!

Yes. Balance issues come with fibromyalgia leading to tripping and falling more often. At least in my case.
